Challenge Alert! PoptropiCon Prompts for the Pop Community! 🦸‍♂️🚨

One last update before the weekend… Just this Wednesday, Episode 2 of PoptropiCon was released to members on desktop and mobile! And SPOILER ALERT, we can’t stop thinking about it.

 

To celebrate its return, you’re invited to join the PoptropiCon Challenges! This round of community challenges is a bit different from previous ones. Instead of offering just 1 prompt, you have a bit more freedom to create what you want to make. Choose from 2 different challenges (or try both)! 👀

 

Show Off Your Dream Cosplay Outfit!

 

We might not be able to recreate costumes and ideas from other brands, but that doesn’t stop us from having fun seeing what other fandoms you’re in!

 

For this cosplay challenge, dress your Popsona with different costume pieces from your closet to make your own character-inspired outfit! Experiment with it! Again, you have full creative freedom. You can try to get as close to your cosplay idea as possible, use the same color pallet, or revamp the character’s original outfit to reflect your style! If you prefer putting pen to paper, that’s perfect too! Draw your Poptropican in your dream cosplay outfit!

 

Here's an example. Can you guess what character inspired this cosplay idea?

OR…

 

Make Your Own Mighty Action Force Card 🃏

 

Episode 2 features a Mighty Action Force card game, highlighting superheroes and villains! Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to design a Mighty Action Force card for your Popsona!

 

Here are some 9 different card examples from the MAF deck:

 

PoptropiCon's Mighty Action Force cards

 

But, you don’t have to follow this design! If you want to tweak the layout or include other info – DO IT! Think it would be cool to highlight your Popsona’s stats? Go for it! Want to list your favorite islands, costumes, characters? FOR SURE. Draw your Popsona, brainstorm a slogan/stats, and add some flair! 🃏

 

Again, you hold all the creative freedom for these challenges! As long as your submission is age-appropriate, you’re good to go! The sky’s the limit.

Everyone that enters the challenge will have the chance to earn huge credit rewards! After the challenges are over, your submissions will be posted for the Pop community to enjoy! Try finding other players that share your interests/fandoms!

 

The PoptropiCon Challenges will end on Wednesday, February 9th at 8pm PST! Send in your dream cosplay outfits or your custom Popsona card through the submissions page. Be sure to include your Popsona’s nickname with your design!

 

We’re geeked to see what you come up with! Drop any and all questions in the comments below if anything is unclear – we’ll help you out!

 

Good luck, Poptropicans. Sending inspiration and good vibes your way!

 

As always, stay poppin’! 🤪

Secret of the jade scarab! That's like Kane Chronicles, but on poptropica!
Hopefully we won't see any animations on this one, though.
For the cosplay costume, I would have the greencloak outfit from the Spirit Animals ad ( has anyone seen it? It was out quite some time ago) because that was a pretty cool ad. Speaking of ads, could you guys bring the spirit animals ad back?
Was there a Kane Chronicles ad too? I'm not sure, but it would be awesome.

Animations are okay, but I hope Search for the Jade Scarab Island will be longer than Fairytale and Goofball, 20-40 minutes.

I love the Kane chronicles

Shiny FlyerJanuary 28, 2022 pm31 9:13 pm

This is an amazing idea! One question, for the Make Your Own Mighty Action Force Card Challenge, can you make your own superhero from your imagination, or do you have to go off the comics? I love island contests! Love this one so keep up the good work!

Of course, that's a great idea!

Um, Shiny Flyer didn't ask a yes/no question, so you can't just say "of course". Jeez, you'd think a social media manager would actually read the question before trying to answer it.

Shifty PawJanuary 29, 2022 am31 12:17 am

Will secret of the jade scarab have Egyptian magic in it?
As in curved wands, staffs, amulets,shabti and magic words of power?
What if you have to use your wand, staff, amulet etc to battle chaotic magicians and gods of chaos like Set, with the help of other gods like Bast and Bes. I am looking forward to this island !

It's Bakugo

January 31, 2022 pm31 1:50 pm

It was supposed to be a Spiderman knockoff, but it does look like Bakugo too!

Silver GhostJanuary 29, 2022 pm31 5:13 pm

First of i’m like wow like so wow so much work in one week. Also like dude it would be very exciting if you just tell us when the old islands are coming like I want to know soo badly. They are so nostalgic sooo I just want to know and finally if the old islands come are they in a new format.
P.s. I hope you answer these questions in a post in a few days…

Can we submit more than one in each category and still get the credits for all submissions?

Replies
